MILAN (AP) — It’s perhaps only fitting that in a country where pasta is the staple, a player nicknamed “The Noodle” starred in his debut.
New signing Ángel Di María was at the heart of every good move from Juventus in Monday’s opening game. He scored one goal and set up another in the 3-0 win over Sassuolo as the Bianconeri looked very different from the team that was often described as dull and boring last season.
That’s why an injury he sustained is such a blow.
Di María was substituted in the 66th minute with a left thigh injury and will definitely miss Monday’s game at Sampdoria. Depending on the results of further testing later next week, he could be back for the following crunch match against Roma.
“Maybe I should have taken him off when we went 3-0 up, but he was having fun,” said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Di María is the latest injury problem for Juventus, who are already without colleague Paul Pogba, as well as Federico Chiesa, Kaio Jorge and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny.
However, Moise Kean and Adrien Rabiot are available after being suspended for the opener.
There was little fanfare when Di María joined Juventus on a free transfer last month after seven years at Paris Saint-Germain. The 34-year-old Argentina international’s signing was overshadowed by Pogba, who flew to Turin on the same day and returned to the club just days later.
But the fans at Allianz Stadium – and the opposition – were blindsided by Di María on Monday. Nicknamed ‘El Fideo’ (‘The Noodle’) because of his slim frame, Di María was everywhere, weaving between defenders and being at the heart of every Juventus attack.
He opened the scoring and nearly doubled his tally before providing a superb assist for Dušan Vlahović’s second of the night.
“Playing with Ángel Di María is an incredible sensation, a great pleasure,” said Vlahović. “I thank him for the support and I hope to receive and give many more.
“I think that we will work well together, but the most important thing is that the team works and wins. Ángel played an extraordinary game.”
It wasn’t all positive for Juventus, however. It started sluggishly and there was little sign of what was to come after Sassuolo had several chances to score first.
That changed after the cooling break halfway through the first section. Juventus resumed with a greatly changed attitude after Allegri spoke to his players.
“It was a moment when they took some shots, we couldn’t control the game. I moved Di María wide and (Juan) Cuadrado to the other side, but I didn’t say anything special to the guys,” Allegri said. “I changed it a bit to cover the field better. From that moment we had the right game. I was either bad at the beginning or good afterwards.”
Juventus’ main title rivals – Napoli, Roma and Milan clubs – also won their opening games last weekend. It was the first time in over 50 years that there had been no draw in the opening round of the season.
Inter Milan host Spezia on Saturday, AC Milan play Monza and Napoli meet Atalanta the following day. Roma plays Cremonese on Monday.
